retail plan

• By Jess Gibson

HIGH-PROFILE developer

Richard Peebles will bring

Lyttelton’s Woolstore to life.

The Peebles Group is developing

the new hospitality and retail

complex in the building on Te Ana

Marina.

Residents have been waiting for

Lyttelton Port Company to announce

its plans for The Woolstore

since it became vacant in October.

Some of the Mr Peebles’ city

developments undertaken with his

partners Mike Percasky and Kris

Inglis include the Little High restaurant

complex and the soon to be

opened Riverside farmers’ market

and Riverside retail complex.

The Woolstore’s rustic character

offers 720 sq m of ground floor

space and features views over the

marina, on-site car parking as well

as a pedestrian link connecting Te

Ana Marina to Lyttelton.

The Peebles Group’s vision for

the new complex includes small

diverse retail activities, a local

bar and restaurant, a gym which

could have spin classes on the

promenade, as well as small offices

with “unrivalled views.”

from the editor’s desk

THERE’S GREAT news on the front

page today regarding The Woolstore in

Lyttelton.

It has been a long-time coming but

finally word on who the developer of the

bar, cafe and retail complex is out: The Peebles Group.

The group is tip-top developers. It has the popular Little High

in the central city and the soon-to-be opened Riverside farmers’

market and Riverside retail complex.

But the important thing is the group, headed by Richard

Peebles, has its heart in the region.

It could have taken its money and ran to potentially more

lucrative locations after the earthquakes. But they have invested

here – which has been a massive help for the rebuild.

Now they are doing something big in Lyttelton. Great news.

Residents launch litterbug patrol

• By Jess Gibson

A NEW litterbug patrol will

mitigate roadside rubbish

around Diamond Harbour.

Residents say they are sick

of seeing litter which has been

thrown from vehicles in Diamond

Harbour

and areas such

as Allandale

Reserve, Teddington

and

Governors Bay.

Diamond

Harbour

Callum

Fawcett

resident Callum

Fawcett decided

to launch the

Volunteer Litterbug Patrol after

he spent 30 minutes picking up

rubbish on Gebbies Pass and

barely made a dent.

Mr Fawcett said the disregard

of people who litter is “very frustrating”

as the area is considered

paradise by himself and other

residents.

The first litter pick-up event

is set for August 11, meeting

at 8.30am in the Diamond

Harbour School car park before

walking over to Allandale

Reserve.

Mr Fawcett said there will be

a quick introduction then briefing

before heading out at “9am

sharp in groups of four to six

people per vehicle and trailer.”

www.fourseasonstreecare.co.nz

He said more than 30 people

have expressed an interest when

he made a post about the patrol

on the Facebook page Diamond

Harbour, New Zealand Facebook

page.

“Once we have done the first

pickup, I’ve asked the school in

a months time if we can involve

the local students to do a quarterly

pick-up in the waterways.”

He said children will not be

involved in the roadside pick-ps

due to safety concerns.

Mr Fawcett said he eventually

wants to see signs that read

“Diamond Harbour is a litterbug

free zone.”

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Tyrone Fields

said it was good to hear that

residents were taking action.

“We are always looking for

ways to facilitate local people

following their passions so it’s

great.”

•If you would like to get

involved, phone Mr Fawcett

on 021 631 048.

In Brief

FRIED FISH OVERDONE

Eight Akaroa Volunteer Fire

Brigade firefighters attended

a callout at The Giants House

bed and breakfast after fish

which was being cooked on a

stove set off the smoke alarms

on Sunday. The crew arrived in

two appliances at about 8.30pm

and spent 40min trying to settle

smoke in the kitchen so the

alarms would stop.

GODLEY HEAD FEEDBACK

Residents have until Monday

to have a say on the future

of the Godley Head site. The

consultation is being done to

gather feedback on what the

public would like to use the area

for, keeping in mind the land is

a reserve under the Reserves Act

1977. The foundations of Godley

House will remain untouched.

BRIDGE TO BE REPLACED

THe replacement of a bridge on

Tikao Bay Rd, Wainui, is set to

start on Monday. The bridge

will be closed for up to seven

days. During this time,

pedestrian access will be

provided and the affected

residents will be informed of

the days of closure. Work is

being done as the infrastructure

has been assessed and is nearing

the end of its life.

THICK, see-through walls will

allow the public to peer into the

history of Ferrymead’s 149-yearold

cob cottage.

New designs show what the

building in Scott Park will look

like after it undergoes $530,000

repairs as part of the city council’s

plan to restored heritage

buildings across the city.

The building, which is known

as Penfold Cottage, was severely

damaged in the Canterbury

earthquakes – with two of its

walls mostly collapsed.

Standing walls at the front of

the building will be strengthened

with an interior steel frame,

while the two partial walls will

be encased in clear materials. The

roof will also be fixed.

Inside it will be historic items

of interest.

Heritage programme manager

Richie Moyle said the building

will be “vandal-proof” from graffiti

or scratch-marks.

He said staff have ensured

the building will have adequate

ventilation, and that drainage

systems have been redone to

prevent the glass from fogging up

on the inside.

Mr Moyle said staff hope to get

contractors on the job in October

so that work can be completed by

February 2020.

City councillor Sara Templeton

said the cottage will be an asset

to the community as it will be

a destination along the coastal

pathway.

“I think it’s great that the building

is finally getting its repairs.

There was a really good consultation

with the community and

what came out of it was that people

wanted to be able to value the heritage

and be able to see it, but didn’t

necessarily want to go inside.”

Clear materials for cottage

DESIGNS: Ferrymead’s cob cottage in Scott Park will be

strengthened with an interior steel frame, while the two partial

walls will be encased in clear, strong materials. ​

The cottage was built by sea

captain James Penfold.

However, it was lived in by

migrants in the late 19th-century

before being largely rebuilt

in the 1940s using cob style

construction – a mixture of clay

and tussock or rushes.

Guts & Grace: Christchurch City

Mission by Geoffrey .M.r. Haworth

The Christchurch City Mission is one of the city’s most respected and

active caring organisations. It was born during the start of the Great

Depression, the last of New Zealand’s Anglican founded city missions.

It took root during a time of social upheaval, as Christchurch came to

grips with the depression, and then with the outbreak of the Second

World War.

Countless Cantabrians have benefitted from the services it provides.

Many hundreds of people have contributed to its teams of volunteers,

or joined its paid staff. Many more give generously to supporting its

operations, sharing its vision, and planning its future.

As the Mission prepares to celebrates its ninetieth birthday, it will

finally tell its story. It is a remarkable story of vision, generosity, daring

experiment, and fruitful partnerships. The City Missioners have all been

people of rare talents and creative energy. They have been served by

many people of strong ability and practicality, united in their dedication

to the purposes of the City Mission.

The Great Successor: The Secret rise

and rule of Kim Jong Un. By Anna Fifield

The behind-the-scenes story of the rise and reign of the world’s strangest

and most elusive tyrant, Kim Jong Un, by the journalist with the best

connections and insights into the bizarrely dangerous world of North

Korea. An irreverent yet insightful quest to understand the life of Kim Jong

Un, one of the world’s most secretive dictators. Kim’s life is swathed in

myth and propaganda, from the plainly silly--he supposedly ate so much

Swiss cheese that his ankles gave way--to the grimly bloody stories

of the ways his enemies and rival family members have perished at

his command. One of the most knowledgeable journalists on modern

Korea, Anna Fifield has exclusive access to Kim’s aunt and uncle who

posed as his parents while he was growing up in Switzerland, members

of the entourage that accompanied Dennis Rodman on his quasiambassadorial

visits with Kim, and the Japanese sushi chef whom Kim

befriended and who was the first outsider to identify him as the inevitable

successor to his father as supreme ruler. She has been able to create a

captivating portrait of the oddest and most isolated political regime in the

world, one that is broken yet able to summon a US president for peace

talks, bankrupt yet in possession of nuclear weapons. Kim Jong Un;

ridiculous but deadly, and a man of our times

HISTORY: Teddington farmers once used a 300ft jetty, built in 1865, before it was wiped out by a

tsunami three years later.

Blog unearths stories

behind Lyttelton

Harbour’s lost jetties

• By Jess Gibson

YOU MAY not know it, but

Teddington was once home

to a 300ft jetty that stretched

out across the mudflats to help

farmers who used the sea as their

highway.

Its use was short-lived. In 1868,

three years after it was built,

it was wiped out by the largest

recorded distant tsunami to

strike New Zealand.

This story is one of 58 that were

uncovered by Governors Bay

resident Jane Robertson on her

blog Between Land and the Sea:

Jetties of Whakaraupo/Lyttelton

Harbour.

Ms Robertson has just wrapped

her series of blogposts about

Lyttelton Harbour’s lost jetties,

which she has been working on

since early 2018.

She has written stories about

private and public jetties in

Charteris Bay, Purau, Cass Bay

and Camp Bay, among others.

She decided to focus on the

topic of jetties after writing

her 2016 book, Head of the

Harbour: A history of Governors

Bay, Ōhinetahi, Allandale and

Teddington.

For each lost jetty, Ms

Robertson would travel

to its location to see any

evidence and form a

mental picture of what

once was.

“I actually see things

differently. I can see

how difficult life was

for a lot of people,” Ms

Robertson said.

Ms Robertson would

spend about a week

or longer writing each

post, gathering information

from websites, old newspapers,

books, national archives as well

as residents.

She said people who have

viewed the blog have given her

positive feedback.

“What I like most is when

people say, ‘oh, I remember that’.”

“Charteris Bay was an

interesting one because of the old

yacht club out there. I had a lot of

people talk to me about that and

give me photographs. There were

actually a lot of old jetties out that

way once upon a time,”

she said.

Ms Robertson moved

to Governors Bay in

2003 and decided to give

up her job at Canterbury

University in 2006 as

she wanted to earn an

income in Governors

Bay.

“I was fed up with

living in such a

beautiful place and having to

go over the hill and work out of

concrete buildings.”

Governors Bay walking

track temporarily closing

A POPULAR walking track

along the Governors Bay

foreshore will be closed

weekdays for the next two

months.

The closure is necessary

because contractors working on

the Lyttelton Harbour wastewater

project need to lay new

pipeline and electrical cabling

to connect the Jetty Rd pump

station with the new Governors

Bay pump station, which was

commissioned last month.

“Heavy machinery and rock

breaking equipment will be in

use while this work is done so in

the interests of public safety we

have decided to close the track

during the weekdays when the

contractors are working,’’ said

city council senior project manager

Hunter Morgan.

“We know the track though

is very popular so we will be

allowing public access to it in the

weekends.’’

The pipeline and cabling work

is part of the Lyttelton Harbour

Wastewater Project to end the

routine discharge of treated

wastewater into the harbour.

The project involves converting

Tram lines unearthed

A SECTION of the original

Sumner tram line has

been uncovered during

Sumner Village Master Plan

enhancement works.

Well-preserved tram tracks

were discovered last when undertaking

works in the middle

of the carriageway on Marriner

St, near the intersection with

Burgess St.

A tram line connecting

Christchurch and Sumner was

first proposed in 1855, but it was

not until the 1880s that the idea

became reality, with the Sumner

tram line extension opened in

1888.

City council’s planning,

delivery and transport manager

Lynette Ellis said the on-site

archaeologist was able to record

and photograph the sleepers

and take a sample for later testing.

However, the construction of

the road means that the site is

not able to be preserved.

Contractors are currently

in stage eight of the village

upgrades, which includes

paving footpaths and road

surfaces at the intersection of

Marriner St and Wakefield

Ave, digging up the old road

surface along Wakefield Ave and

building a new one, installing,

testing and chlorinating the

new water mains, installing and

testing the water sub-mains

and continuing to install

the stormwater pipes along

Wakefield Ave.

I used to be quite the fan of cold

Once in every three-year term

My representative this year

For many people, Parliament

is so good to see it being taken

The Youth MPs got to not only

work in the select committee

environment but also to debate

in Parliament itself. They raised

issues which need to be debated

and considered more, particularly

around access to mental

health support, climate change

and respect for the voices of

young people. They certainly

earned that respect.

Our electorate was honoured

to actually have another “local”

Sumner was also a Youth MP for

my colleague Nicky Wagner. She

described it as “amazing and a

It is an experience which

I certainly hope breaks

down some of the barriers

between our young people and

understanding how Parliament

works. Our Youth MPs are the

Scholarship thrown way of pitcher

FAST BALL: Josh Wilson will become just the second

Canterbury baseballer to play at college in the United States.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

• By Gordon Findlater

SPORT

SUMNER TEENAGE baseball

Josh Wilson will take his

talents stateside after striking a

scholarship to play at Hesston

College in Kansas.

The 18-year-old pitcher will

become just the second Canterbury

baseballer to play at college

in the United States and the first

to receive a scholarship to play

when he leaves for Kansas on

August 11.

He is also the latest youngster

chasing the dream of becoming

Kiwi to play in Major League

Baseball. Christchurch softball

turned baseball player Travis

Wilson – who is of no relation to

Josh – came tantalisingly close

to cracking MLB in the early

2000s.

Wilson only took up baseball

three years ago when he was

introduced to the sport by a

friend. However, a background

in cricket made the adaption

easier.

“He’s taken to it like a duck

to water. The cricketers seem to

be able to adapt quite well,” said

Canterbury Baseball president

Brian Hemera.

“They see the ball coming

overarm to them with cricket,

so it’s a bit like facing a full toss

really.”

Wilson says he enjoyed watching

baseball and had played t-

ball in his primary school years,

but was unaware a baseball competition

existed in Christchurch.

“I hadn’t done much pitching

before baseball, but I knew I had

a decently strong arm from fielding

on the boundary in cricket

. . . when I was first started I was

rubbish. I couldn’t throw a strike

to save my life,” said Wilson.

“My coach helped me a lot with

solidifying solid form and a good

technique. It’s a massive part of

pitching and I’ve just kept doing

that. I don’t even have to throw a

ball, I just go through the same

motion over and over again.”

Persistence has paid off. Last

year Wilson travelled to the US

with the New Zealand under-18

team which competed at the

ADAPTING:

Wilson only

took up

baseball three

years ago, but

has been aided

by a strong

upbringing in

cricket.

Arizona Fall Classic Showcase.

The tournament allowed Wilson

to show off his talents in front of

college scouts which has led to

the scholarship opportunity at

the junior college.

Wilson says he gets most of his

strikes from curve balls and sliders

and can currently get his fast

ball near 80mph (128km/h).

He currently plays in the

Christchurch mens competition

which has just four teams. However,

with a number of younger

players taking up the game he

can see more of them following

in his footsteps.

“I can definitely see guys

younger than me going there. I

wish I started when I was 12 or

13. Those kids are getting really

good coaching and I can see

them doing really well,” Wilson

said.

Flowers are

always a winner

AdveRTORiAL

And not just for the champions – everyone

gets a flowery gift at the Governor’s Bay to

Lyttelton 10km run. On Saturday 17 August,

one of Canterbury’s longest-running events

will be in its 58th year. The 10km running

event organised by the Methodist Harriers

is only overtaken by one other Canterbury

classic - the Takahe to Akaroa Relay which

has been operating for a mere 75 years.

So what makes it popular year after year

to run to Lyttelton from Governor’s Bay?

Firstly, the handicap race guarantees that all

runners, regardless of their ability, celebrate

the finish together. The speedy front runners

start at the back of the event, so there is

always someone behind you. The faster

athletes provide momentum and everyone

feels part of the race, no one is running

on their own. Some entrants use this race

to look for areas of running improvement,

others might smash it out as a competitive

training session. The road surface is easy to

run. (We'll be running on the tarmac edge so

cars can pass, but it would be good to plan

your journey to be slower.) We'll all be taking

care, despite the distraction of the harbour

view – that is huge part of the enjoyment

factor. Another attraction to the event is

the artfully selected flowers by Aromaunga

Baxters Flowers that placeholders can take

home, and the10 floral spot prizes up for

grabs.

Best of all, every participant is a winner,

as race finishers take home a single bloom

to keep celebrating for days. People train

really hard day in day out. Let's increase that

feeling of completing a run and extend the

happiness!

REAL ESTATE

Clearly outstanding views

1 Clearview Lane, Mt Pleasant

Auction: Thursday 8 Aug 2019, Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study

2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0217

Superbly positioned in The Ridge

Subdivision on Mt Pleasant encapsulating

phenomenal views stretching from the

Kaikoura Ranges over the sea to the Southern

Alps. With the rolling hills of John Britten

Reserve and a rural backdrop including

Castle Rock to the South you’ll never tire of

coming home to this grandest of landscapes.

An exceptional home of Sean McCurrie

architectural design and high calibre build

with reassuring solid masonry construction,

complemented with copper and louvres.

A well-appointed sleek European kitchen

boasts granite benchtops and the welcome

feature of the superbly functional scullery,

making entertaining and family life a breeze.

Expansive open plan living has hardwood

floors, a gas fire, and is filled with light and

warmth from full height glass windows

and doors, while glass balustrades ensure

uninterrupted views.

Enjoy seamless indoor/outdoor flow onto

extensive wrap around tiled balconies where

you can sit out of the easterly winds and

watch the sunsets and city lights.

A large office with a built-in desk and

storage gives you an excellent work from

home office space. The master bedroom

complete with ensuite and walk-in-robe

really does feel like your own private

sanctuary as it can be opened on both sides

for access to the patio and fresh air. Flexibility

is paramount in the downstairs level with 3

double bedrooms all opening out onto the

terrace, a main bathroom and a media room

which could also be used as a 5th bedroom

for those unexpected guests. For the wine

connoisseur a cellar is tucked away behind

the stairs.

Finding a hillside home with great

access is a rarity on the hill and this won’t

disappoint with its oversized double garage,

extra parking and turning area. A tastefully

landscaped and easily maintained garden

with a flat lawn area offers everything you

would expect from a quality property.

What are you waiting for? To experience

this exceptional home and sensational views

for yourself, pick up the phone and call me

for your appointment today.
